The Foundation Years – the Frank Field Report

The Foundation Years preventing poor children becoming poor adults (published December 2010) and written by Frank Field MP, on behalf of the Coalition Government reveals the importance of the home learning environment -in particular being read to - for very young children. The importance of visits to the public library are also used as one of the indicators of a good home learning environment. The effective use of school libraries with the active promotion of stories and reading skills is essential to breaking the cycle of poor children becoming poor adults.
